Local Councillor nominees are HERE

PCC candidates are HERE

Absolutely no idea which PCC I will vote for. Jane Kennedy has done a reasonable job but it could be bettered by the right person, if there is one.

A bit undecided on councillor, too many of current labour group have lost the plot so its probably looking like I'm voting green - but I'm not ruling out UKIP yet.

Today we enter the week including these local elections and all we have had so far is the poll card. Absolutely nothing from anybody else. Most unusual.

No need for the Tories to leaflet as they have beaten Labour and other parties to the punch by their front pages advert in the Wirral Globe (I wonder how much that cost them)which coming so close to the election doesn't give any of the other parties a chance to put their views across.


Also the row over anti semitism and the way it's been blown up by the media to take our eyes off Tory issues.

Conservatives really can stand back and do nothing as this labour is doing all their work for them. What a shambles! Until you get rid of Corbyn and elect a believable leader the party is doomed in my opinion.

Think that's one of those generalisations we apply to certain professions (tax collectors, traffic wardens, ciggy police etc ...

Personally not bothered which "party" gets in as long as they do a good job----and there maybe is the problem--its the "party politics" and squabbling that hinder good job being done.

At present its a poison chalice with no money.

ye agreed but we have to have someone. Watching JC before on news at mayday rally, saying Nhs in crisis, housing crisis etc but we surely know that a contributory factor to this is the influx of immigrants and the population increase. He is saying one thing then saying let the immigrants come as many as want to. Doesn't make sense to me....

Long may Corbyn survive. With him as leader, we'll never have another Labour government.

Interesting turn up for the books, prospective conservative candidate for Merseyside PCC David Burgess-Joyce who is currently a Wirral Councillor was sacked by the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) for gross misconduct in 2013.

There are calls for him to withdraw from election and resign as Councillor.
